Wrong by design

  • A challenge!

    Do one hundred consecutive push-ups. In 6 weeks. Here!

    I’m taking this challenge. Did the initial test, and put myself in rank 4 with a whooping 34 full push-ups, which I consider pretty good.

    I’ll continue doing sit-ups and back-arches every morning, but will be following the program for push-ups. Will be interesting to see what that means for me. If it’s good, I guess I’ll be doing the same for sit-ups.

    Over the summer period, the club is somewhat closed down – no regular trainings, but we have one planned for next Tuesday. Instead, I’ve decided to do some physical work out, something I could definately use anyhow.

    Started yesterday, intending to do sit-ups, back-lifts, push-ups every morning. The count this morning was 50, 40 and 30 respectively, so I guess I’m not so badly out of shape as I could’ve been.

    AutoRealm is a nifty piece of software I stumbled upon in my search for a tool to make maps of Dunderhill.

    It’s free (GNU), open source (written in Delphi, though), and pretty cool.

    Below is my first map of Dunderhill made in AutoRealm.

    Well, it’s been out a couple of weeks or so, and I recently ordered this:

    D&D 4th edition core books

    Expected arrival is August 4, just before my last week of vacation kicks in. I want to RP again… sigh.

    I’ve taken up a childhood sport of mine, jiu jitsu. Actually, come this fall, I’ve been doing it for two years since my ten year hiatus. And so, it’s about time I start working on my graduation. The trainers at my club allowed me to keep my grade from ten years ago, so I started as a green belt, and the next one up is nikyu (second grade student), the blue belt.

    Over the last two years, I’ve picked up all the old techniques and learnt a lot of new material – some parts of the curriculum is very different from the one I used to train, but that’s just great. One of the things that are different is that students put together their own curriculum – I get to pick from a large set of techniques and decides which ones to apply in which situations during the test. For listing the techniques I’ve chosen, I’ve created a page here, which I’ll expand as I go along my training.

    My main plan is to train once a week for two months, give or take, and then take the test. For nikyu, this should be quite doable.
